christmas comes early for children at wood green’s festive art competition



Local school children will be full of festive cheer when they learn about the Mall Wood Green’s exciting art competition to design their new Limited Edition Christmas Gift Card. Children are being invited to draw their favourite thing about the holiday season whether it is Santa Claus, a Christmas tree, the prospect of a winter wonderland or a plump turkey with all the trimmings!


The competition will open on the 3rdSeptember and all school pupils between the ages of 4 and 11 can enter. Pictures can be hand drawn or computer generated and must be submitted by the 27th September. The only criteria is that pictures capture the magic and merriment of the holiday season.


The Mall Wood Green will reward the winner with a £50 Christmas Gift Card featuring their unique design as well as an art set filled with a wide range of markers, paints and colouring pencils to further develop their artistic flair. In addition, the winning pupil’s school will receive a £200 gift card, perhaps to spend on some Christams tree-ts!


Michael Thompson, General Manager at The Mall Wood Green, commented: “Christmas is a magical time of year and who understands that better than children. For that reason we are calling on local pupils to let their imaginations go wild and enter our competition to design the artwork for the Mall’s new Limited Edition Christmas Gift Card.


“Our Christmas Gift Card is always very popular with shoppers because it gives people the freedom to buy what they want in a wide range of stores and for that reason whoever wins can look forward to becoming a famous artist in the town for the Christmas period.”


The competition is the latest community focused initiative from The Mall Wood Green and is in-line with its Mall Cares programme. Mall Cares was developed to engage with and motivate shoppers, retailers and the centre management team to work together.


Little elves/children who would like to enter the competition and imagine their most cherished thing about the holiday season should ask their teacher about participating. Schools are requested to send pupils’ completed entry forms to Mall Management or hand them in at The Mall Wood Green’s Ask Me Point. The winner will be announced in early October.


If your school would like to be involved, please contact Amanda O’Hare on Tel: 01604 250 900 or email to receive an information pack and entry forms for your school. The closing date for the competition is Friday the 27th September 2013.



The Limited Edition Gift Card will be available throughout Christmas and will go on sale from the 18th November.
